Well let me tell you.... Week 40 was not exactly a banner week. It started out bad and ended not the greatest.
Last Sunday when I got up for church I could tell I was getting sick. As the day went on it was clear I wasn't getting sick, I was already there. Monday I got up and slowwwwwwly got ready, i was determined to teach even if I had to breathe out of my mouth. Well, After taking a shower and putting on the bare minimum of makeup. I was sitting on the couch forcing myself to eat (should have been a sign right there) and I dozed off while eating! What am I, 90? No, just really miserable. I finally reluctantly cancelled all my lessons and laid down on the couch. I was miserable. Just miserable. I really have no words about Monday and Tuesday other than misery, coughing, sneezing, BLECH. My cold moved into a Sinus Infection and Bronchitis in the blink of an eye. Which was not surprising with my sinuses.
Wednesday I was back at work, and wearing alll the clothes to combat the fever I still had. Was it quite the weather to wear a sweater? Perhaps not. Was I comfy? yes, yes I was!
I even had to put on socks, and my sneakers. Which for my sock hating self tells you how cold I was!
Thursday was more of the same, teaching, sneezing, freezing, but I got thru the day and was very VERY happy to make it to my Friday off.
I rested Friday and Saturday and was still coughing Sunday but feeling a lot better than I had. It was 70 when I woke up but was rainy and the temp was supposed to drop so I busted out my cowboy boots for the first time in our weird fall. I was really glad that I did! By the time I walked out of church it was a very windy and cold 52 degrees. I kind of wished I had a coat/jacket not going to lie.
These shall be known as the last pictures to take on my beloved Windows Smartphone.
Sunday mornings I like to listen to worship music on my drive to church. It gets me in the mindset and prepares me for worship. I have some favorite songs and recently made a youtube playlist with them, so I could listen to them on the way to church. I got in my truck, turned on Your Love Changes Everything and all was fine for about a minute and a half. And then I noticed my song was getting much quieter. And quieter..and then... then I heard a sound.....
It was the sound of death.
I had put my phone in my cup holder spot (HA, first time I typed this I put "Cop Holder"hahhahaha) and had put it upside down so the speaker side was up. I had placed it along side an empty, or rather what I thought was an empty Coke can.
Can you see where this is heading??
I'm still not quite sure how it happened. When I looked down the can was upright, but somehow it spilled out enough coca cola to have my phone half submerged in it.
I was driving through this whole ordeal, so I grabbed it out and tried to wipe it off at red lights and wiped it down when i got to church and left the battery and everything out to dry.
It did not work.
You wouldn't think frying your phone would be quite so stressful but I'm here to tell you it is!! I had errands to run after church and had put my list ON MY PHONE. Yup, left Aldi's without at least one of the items.
I had to go home and email all of my students not to text or call me (many do on a daily basis about different issues). It's Monday and not all of them got that memo. HA!
Anyways, after much searching online and confirming over email with my Mom. A new phone has been ordered and is headed my way. Except not so much the headed MY way. No, it for some reason is headed to my parents house. Which is super helpful. I'm hoping by the end of the week I will have a working phone.
Living in the 1990's is killing me.
